3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2006 Bottled. A dark mahogany coloured beer with a minimal whitish head. The aroma is excellent fruity English hops. A touch of marmalade and sugary goodness to boot. The taste is warming and hoppy. Biscuity malt as well. Lovely fruits. An excellent well balanced sturdy English beer. (7,3,8,3,16) (3.7)
Drank a second time. Aroma nicer and hoppier although taste a little sour and showing slight signs of infection. Still a good product (8,3,7,3,14) (3.5)
Average score given.

Bottle from Morrisons Hatch End. An amber coloured pour with a smallish head. Caramel flavours, fruity, malty and a hint of hops. Alcohol very well hidden. A surprisingly tasty ale, very drinkable indeed.

Aroma of malt with a whiff of chocolate. Caramel colour with a large slightly of white head. Strong taste of malt with a coffee aftertaste. Slightly fizzy would have prefered it to be smooth

Pretty good for a Morrison’s own. Has that distinctive bitter bottle-conditioned taste, but plenty of fruitiness. I would revisit this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Morrisons, Banbury. Copper colour with white head. Big fruity aroma leading to a rich fruity body, redcurrants and cherry come to mind. There is a graininess to the malt, I would think that there is a very pale malt in with the darker roasted chocolate malt. Not much on the hop side though, there is a winey note in the finish with an off putting acidity. Reasonable for a UK BCA though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from, guess.... Aroma is rich malts, biscuity, nutty and toffee character. Taste is similar, quite nutty and almost completly dominated by malt, tasty stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BCA. Unexceptional but reasonably tasty beer. Rounded body, toffeish malts and drying dusty hops. Slight background acidity is a touch out of place.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Pours a good amber colour with little head. The aroma is fruity and also reminded me of candyfloss (!) but the flavour is a good balance of malt and hops followed by a lingering bitterness. Overall a good solid bottle-conditioned ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2008 Just tip all that sediment in there and get on with it. Puts hairs on your chest. Pours deep hazy chestnut (if you’re so inclined), with a creamy off-white head. Fragrant snout packed with chocolatey malt, sticky dark fruit and fresh hop stemminess. Who needs to drink it after that? Oh, go on then...silky roasted chocolate maltiness with some deliciously lingering fresh bread/biscuity afters. The hops are a little engulfed by those 6 varieties of barley, but I couldn’t give a monkey’s. Undeniably very good indeed.
